I am a returning first year teacher working in the Caribbean, on one of the smallest island nations, Grenada. I teach both Math and Science at the high school level and would love to introduce technology into my classes. I, like other high school teachers in my country, do not have my own room and must go from class to class. I therefore need a lightweight option to using multimedia. I think a mini projector will be useful but I would also like to know what else I can use. One thing is for sure, since this is coming out of my own pocket, "cringes", I need a VERY affordable plan. Any advice, anyone?

The one piece of advice I'll give you is before you start thinking technology, think about what part of the learning process do you want enhanced and from there you can start identifying some technology to help do that.

I see so many educators try and use technology just because they have to and because they haven't thought it through, it tends to not help much of anything.

When you decide on some tech, I'd suggest posting your need on Your situation seems perfect and I'd guess many would help donate to your cause.

Hope this helps!
